I have ate at Western Chow at its Bishan outlet many times. The western food is real good and affordable.
Western Chow provides western food that is hainanese style yet halal. A fusion between western and hainanese, how unique! I have just come to know that the Bishan outlet and Bedok outlet has closed down due to staffing issues. Their current new outlet is located a Tampinese (Pls see the end of the post for full address). I am going to miss this western stall.

are were from its bishan branch before it closed down.
Frankly, their Promotional Set Menu is not worth ordering. I ate it once and stopped ordering the set menu. The soup was diluted while the dessert was pathetic. Before, you think this is a post about lousy food, read on as their mains are amazing delicious!
You get to choose 2 sides for any main course.
Ordered Chicken Chop Mushroom Sauce. I chose Fries and Baby Carrots for my sides. I ordered their whip potato (side) before and it was not to my liking. The chicken chop was soft, tender,juicy and well-marinated, which is a real gem as it is hard to find coffee shop food of this standard. Of course, the mushroom sauce cannot be compared to places such as Jack’s Place. It was real good and complement to a already delicious chicken chop. The garlic bread was cold and soft, could have been toasted before serving. The Fries was on the salty end while the baby carrots was perfect; soft and the sweetness of the carrot still remains.
I ordered the Char-Grilled Black Pepper Chicken on another occasion. Similarly, the sides I ordered was fries and baby carrot. The chicken was well grilled(look at the marks in the picture). Despite the grilling, the chicken was still soft, tender and juicy. Not dry and hard unlike other western stalls. Moreover, the charred bites and the back pepper sauce enhanced the taste. Yummilious! Again, the garlic bread was cold and soft, could have been toasted before serving. The Fries was on the salty end, they should really cut down the amount of salt used. The baby carrots was again perfect!
I have tried the Crispy Chicken Chop $5.90 before too and it is equally delicious! Their mains so far (what i tried) have not disappoint me at all. With improvements on their Garlic Bread and Fries, the meal would have been even more perfect!
I hope that once Western Chow has settled its staffing issues, it will open at Bishan again. They have closed all outlets and open a new one at Tampinese. Their new outlet address is below. Heard that their menu has changed sightly too. Hopefully food quality remains.
